DURBAN – The Limpopo Department of Social Development has said that the suspect arrested for the murder of seven of his relatives should absolutely not be released on bail.

Police said the 52-year-old killed four children and three adults, including his sister-in-law and brothers.

The man then fled after the shooting, but then surrendered.

He is due in court next week.

Christmas turned into a time of mourning for the Ndou family in the village of Jones in Limpopo after one of their relatives killed seven of his relatives.

Although the motive for the murders is unknown, police suspect it could be linked to a family feud.

The Department of Social Development condemned the murder and provided assistance to the family.

“We also ask the court not to give bail to the suspect who turned himself over to the police,” Witness spokesman Tiva said.

Police are still investigating the incident.
